After the busy holiday season and time to recoup, I am back!  Over the past few months I've been concentrating more on improving my art form and less on selling.  Trying to find the perfect organization and home for my work has been a top priority for me as well.  My timing couldn't be any more perfect than to find a new art organization joining our Huntington community, MiAppa, that will open April 29th in Heritage Station.
I became a member of MiAppa and am so excited to be part of this wonderful organization!  MiAppa is a nonprofit organization that focuses on helping Appalachian artisans promote and improve their skills.  MiAppa began in Portsmouth, OH and have big plans for the future.  They plan on opening up at least 6 more locations within the year!  Being involved with an organization that provides me great opportunities and helps me to grow as an artist is a fantastic opportunity that I couldn't pass by.

Friday, April 29th MiAppa will have the grand opening from 10-6pm.  The art center is located in Heritage Station in the boutiques located behind the visitors bureau.  My art and jewelry can be found there every day after opening.  Regular hours are 10-6pm Mon thru Sat.  I will announce more about the opening and my regular hours when I will be at the boutique within the next few days.  I hope you will come check out MiAppa and all the great changes that are happening at Heritage Station!
